    hello people, I'm trying to make my new mobile (Sony Ericcson K750i) stream a video file from rtsp://streaming.filmsbynick.com/streaming.filmsbynick.com/mp4v1.mp4
    its under 3MB by the way. and the file will play when I save it to my phones memory, but wont stream, i keep getting 'unable to connect to server' message, but I know that the darwin service is active on this domain. I use dreamhost, and they offer it, so I use it.

    now does anyone know how to stream .mp4 files from the web to a video phone? and if so, how do we do it?

    thanks people

    I thought Darwin was strictly for .mov clips. But I dunno...

    Your url seems correct though, but you may have to ask DH directly. Their Wiki has always been rather useless on the subject of streaming.

    I realised the wiki is pretty useless, I'll get in touch with them, thanks

    What are you saving the file as? You need to save it as a 'hinted' file I believe.

    saving as .mp4 with hinted streaming I think, I'll check the export settings
